Cleaning Luxury Fabrics – Dallas Home Design Center – Furniture as Art

Cleaning Luxury Fabrics

With all the types of fabric blends, cleaning materials, and temperature settings, maintenance and care for fabrics can be pretty confusing and intimidating! There are some general rules such as don’t over-wash and when in doubt, use cold water, but the rules and methods of care do go a bit deeper than that… depending on the fabric, of course!

That’s why we’ve decided to create this series of care and methods for fabrics! In this series of guides, we’ll give you short and easy lists for your reference that will note qualities of the fabrics, how to wash them (or not wash them), and when it’s safe (or not!) to iron a fabric! We’ll start with a small group–the Luxury fabrics–consisting of Silk, Velvet, Wool, and Leather.

Furniture as Art

How Should Furniture Respond to the World Around It?

Artists have long been interested in the domestic space, but as the distinction between art and design becomes ever more blurred, more artists are making objects that function, and more designers are making sculpture. Plus: Five designers create original furniture, exclusively for T.

WHEN WE TALK about artists making furniture, an old debate over whether design counts as art (and vice versa) rises once again to the surface, like a shark baited with chum. Furniture designers aren’t, by the logic of the category, really artists, and artists, by that same logic, must normally be engaged in a higher pursuit than furniture…

These Artists Would Love for You to Sit on Their Work

A zany perversity is rampant in the studios of many young, contemporary creators who are trampling the boundary between furniture and fine art. For artists who want to break rules, this offers tempting propositions: chairs that aren’t meant for sitting, lamps that are less interested in illumination than in aesthetic verve, home goods that don’t work like they should. Rebellious aesthetes are turning old, recognizable forms—the sofa, the shelf—into objects for considerable contemplation. In their studios, provocation and individual expression override comfort and utility…

Robert Allen Furniture – Custom, Easy and Beautiful

Designer Jan Showers relied on Robert Allen Custom Furniture for her one-of-a-kind design. With the sophisticated yet stylish Tate chair as her canvas, she chose to make it her own with Shifted Stripe in Blush by DwellStudio for Robert Allen @ Home and added accenting welting with Wool Sateen in Lambswool by Beacon Hill.

“I love this simple pattern on this stylish chair. It would work in any interior and make such a chic statement.”

Remove Pet Odors from Carpets, Drapes and Furniture – Cleaning Tips

When cleaning up after a pet, it is important to address the carpet pad beneath, as this will absorb liquids. Check the manufacturers website, or contact a cleaning professional for suggestions regarding how to best clean the pad.

Do you need to eliminate odors from your furniture? Using carpet and upholstery deodorizers with baking soda is one of the best ways to get rid of unpleasant odors. You can even use plain baking soda in some cases, since it can trap the invisible molecules that cause the odors.

Have you ever noticed that fabric window treatments, such as drapes, retain the smell of foods and other odors in your home? Let us install new blinds, which do not absorb the odors in your home.

Did you know that one of the biggest problems pet owners have is pet odors in their carpets? Pet urine can soak through the backing of your carpet and create a multi-layered problem that can be very difficult to get rid of.

If you have pets and are getting new carpeting, ask the retailer or installer to use a carpet pad that has been treated to fight pet odors, in the event of an accident.
